Homework is work that is set to be done outside the timetabled curriculum. It contains an element of independent study. Homework is important in raising student achievement.
Not all homework is done at home; in fact, for some students who find it hard to work at home, or for some tasks which may require resources (books, software, equipment) more readily available at school, it is necessary or desirable to carry out the task at school.
Homework enhances student learning, improves achievement and develops students' study skills and as such is an integral part of the curriculum. It requires careful planning and integration into the scheme of work of each curriculum area.
Students are awarded points on ClassCharts for homework completed.
